    Chef Joey Z.'s Note:

    Christmas beans are large red and white lima beans. When cooked they have a chestnut like texture and a very creamy taste. My hubby grew some of these lovely beans last summer and they are delicious in this soup. I cooked this soup over night in my crock pot and the house smelled wonderful all night long! My crock pot holds 7 quarts which you need for this amount of soup.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 large turkey thighs (bone on and seared in coconut oil)
    • 1 lb beans (I used Christmas beans soaked for 8 hours)
    • 24 cups chicken soup broth
    • 2 celery ribs (chopped small)
    • 4 medium potatoes (chopped small, I used Yukon Gold)
    • 1/2 fennel bulb (chopped small)
    • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable soup, bouillon (I used "better then bouillon" in the jar)
    • 2 bay leaves
    • fresh pepper (optional)


    1. 1
      Sear the turkey thighs until golden brown in coconut or other oil that can tolerate high heat. Once done discard the oil and pat the oil off the thighs with a paper towel.
    2. 2
      Drain the beans and discard the soak water.
    3. 3
      Put the seared turkey thighs in the crock pot and add the rest of the ingredients. Give it a stir.
    4. 4
      Cook on low for 10 hours.
    5. 5
      Once the 10 hours is up, remove the turkey thighs and discard the bone and skin. If you like, add some of the meat back into the soup if you want. I didn't because some fell off the bone into the soup and it was plenty.
    6. 6
      If you want sprinkle a little more parsley in the soup. You can also add some salt if you wish, but I didn't as I felt the soup bouillon had enough in it.
    7. 7
      Serve with some crusty bread.
    8. 8
      Bon Appetit!
